Charlotte loves dressing exactly the same as her baby sister. Loves it.
So when I got dressed on Saturday and realized I could pull together an almost identical outfit for my girl I couldn’t resist.
- J Crew Swiss Dot Tuxedo Shirt
- Madewell Skinny Skinny Jeans - BEST BEST BEST BEST jeans ever.
- Target maternity tank - perfect for layering
- Sam Edelman High tops in blush
A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face she inquired, “How heavy is this glass of water?” The answers called out ranged from 8oz to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything.” Always remember to put the glass down.
And now my outfit for tomorrow is decided. Over-the-knee boots, jeans and chambray shirt. BOOM!
The best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you.
That’s what people do who love you. They put their arms around you and love you when you’re not so lovable.
2014 Books :: Book 4
From the New York Times best-selling author of Commencement and Maine comes a gorgeous, sprawling novel about marriage—about those who marry in a white heat of passion, those who marry for partnership and comfort, and those who live together, love each other, and have absolutely no intention of ruining it all with a wedding.
So I was kinda meh about this book. I didn’t like the fact that there appeared to be a bunch of completely unrelated story lines. The constant chopping and changing between them was annoying. I did like learning about the marketing that was behind the booming diamond engagement ring industry.
I give it 3 out of 5 and probably wouldn’t recommend it.
A Day at the Beach
You know it’s been a long cold Winter when you wake up on a Saturday, realize it’s 10 degrees celsius (50F) and go straight to the beach because it feels so warm.
But let’s not get too carried away. I mean, there was snow on the beach. Snow. On the beach. Mind = blown.
